I tried to find a good story about it at the CBC amidst all their Peter MacKay is a big fat meaniepants stories and over at the CTV.ca web site amidst all the Pulitzer Prize for Crafty Polling-worthy polls hot from the office of their official pollster, the liberal-left strategery council polling firm, but couldn’t find it. Their Bell Globemedia bro, the Globe and Mail, brought me nothing, as didn’t their kissin’ cousin, the farther-leftist Toronto Star. Apparently everything is better to talk about than the left-wing anti-Christian anti-conservative pro-liberal-left media bias discovered, again, at the BBC.
Rest assured, media mavens, if Fox News Channel admitted they were “right-wing biased”, there’s be a 6-episode “Passionate Eye” series on the CBC, it would headline “The National” for days, The state-employed Newsworld news reader Nancy Wilson would proclaim it “very… VERY interesting!”, every liberal Canadian newspaper would cover it from head to toe, and there’d be a “W-5” special report on CTV. Scratch that. Let me start that again: they’ve already done stories about that notion even though no such “admission” (or secret memos) has ever been discovered —quite the contrary.
c’gal pointed this out yesterday in her headline news, but a hat tip to Linda and other readers who read this in some select media outlets today and wondered if I thought Canada’s leftist state-run media division of the liberals would admit that they’re even more biased — on more fronts — than the self-confessed anti-Christian BBC.
Please excuse me while I consider it for a moment.
OK, uh, no. No, they won’t admit it, don’t be so silly.
Internal corporation memo on ‘impartiality’ summit leaked to British media exposes truth on BBC bias
LONDON – The British Broadcasting Corporation has been struggling for several years against criticisms and claims of biased reporting concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and distorted coverage of the global fight against terror.
Following a diplomatic incident with Israel, the BBC appointed an editor known for his objective reporting, however, the true stance of the corporation’s editors remained the same.
An internal memo, recently discovered by the British media, revealed what the BBC has been trying to hide. Senior figures admitted in a recent ‘impartiality’ summit that the BBC was guilty of promoting Left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment.
Most executives admitted that the corporation’s representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate, and that it leaned too strongly towards political correctness, the overt promotion of multiculturalism, anti-Americanism and discrimination against the countryside.
Just visit the great daily read for me, Media Research Center, for more like this.
A couple hot ones from there today:
And much more, here.
Too bad today’s routine Vancouver Sun’s anti-Christian, anti-Bush, Anti-American tripe is behind a subscriber-only lock today, because it’s a perfect example. It is all about the fact that a Christian (and a damned Conservative… and a so-called Canadian!), Darrel Reid, was appointed to be Rona Ambrose’s Chief of Staff (hat tip to Heather for that story). Yes, this happened and was widely reported weeks ago. They decided to rehash it today for no reason other than to bring it up again, I imagine because they’re so appalled.
Reid served five years as president of the Canadian arm of Focus on the Family, an American-based evangelical group influential with United States President George W. Bush.
Until 2004, Reid was the point man for the Langley-based Focus in attacking the federal government and the courts on issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage and divorce. He lobbied for more Christian involvement in Canadian politics.
There are indications the decision to hire him as Ambrose’s top political aide came more from the office of Prime Minister Stephen Harper than from Ambrose, who is not known as religious…
